  • Rosenblum Pink Moscato 2011

    Snoothrank:

  • Los Dos Muscat Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A touch herbal on the nose with light apricot notes. There's a bright candied pop on entry here that's quite floral and sugary, even though this is a dry wine. It's more perfumed and like sour candy than it is literally sweet. There's also some lemon notes to finish. Read More
